Talk:Swarm of scarab beatles
Do the Jackets drop if you don't have torso awaregness? If not, then someone should note that.
Didn't notice happiness mentioned here. "You acquire an item: rocky raccoon
You acquire an item: carbonated water lily
You acquire an item: happiness "
Description: "This is a warm gun, Mama. Try not to jump it.
Type: ranged weapon (1-handed pistol) Power: 165 Moxie Required: 67 Selling Price: 95 Meat.
Enchantment: +12 Hot Damage"
Haven't created any articles here yet, so I leave this task in better hands than mine. --00p 03:30, 27 June 2007 (CDT)
I see someone said it's weak to Sleaze but my Hot spell just did double damage. So it's not a 'known' element, or it's just weak to all elements. Anyone willing to smack it with an Obsidian to see which elements it reacts to?
Nope, I just Obsidian'd it, and it did normal damage for everything else (No resistance) and double hot and sleaze. Odd.
Today, my spooky gravy fairy only did 1 damage to it, so for today, at least, it resists spooky. --Drab Emordnilap 19:53, 9 August 2007 (CDT)
Ascension-specific jacket drop?
Has anyone gotten more than one type of jacket to drop in the same ascension? I have three of the same one and no others right now, but this could just be coincidental. --Dayv 15:07, 16 July 2007 (CDT)
- I've got two different jackets in my current ascension. —Yendor 16:15, 16 July 2007 (CDT)
I got all four in one ascension. I've never gotten more than 1 type to drop in a single encounter.--Foggy 16:21, 16 July 2007 (CDT)
The jackets only drop if you are aware, right? Shouldn't that be mentioned? --Blazingthunder 08:01, 20 July 2007 (CDT)

Is it possible for more than 1 jacket to drop per kill? --Dibbin 08:57, 5 September 2007 (CDT)
- No. --TimRem 16:59, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
Theory: Multiple Monsters
I'm starting to think that there is more than one monster with the same name and image here. This would explain why nobody has reported getting more than one jacket at a time, and it would also explain the unpredictable elemental resistances/weaknesses this encounter has displayed. --Dayv 13:00, 18 November 2007 (CST)
Yellow Ray Item Drop
I got the following from the Swarm of scarab beatles when I blasted them with the He-boulder's yellow ray:
carbonated water lily
Maxwell's Silver Hammer
I was hoping for a jacket... oh well. Looks like they are conditional somehow. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Phoenixofskycon (talk • contribs)
- They are, in that only one of them can drop at a time. --TechSmurf 08:05, 27 September 2009 (UTC)
- You can still get one of the jackets when a yellow ray is used, the regular drop mechanic still applies to the conditional drops. I have a screen cap proving that. --Muhandes 13:10, 7 October 2009 (UTC)
Breaking news gentlemen. I just yellowrayed a beatles and got a hearts club jacket, which by normal circumstances, should not drop because it's a conditional. what? Ask for screenshot Argus 10:09, 3 July 2011 (CEST)
- The ray forces all non-conditional items to drop. That doesn't mean items that are conditional can't drop anyway. --Yatsufusa 18:06, 3 July 2011 (CEST)
This monster does give the group monster message when tango of terror is used. --Uzziah 18:16, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
Special jacket condition?
It may just be an absurdly large amount of luck, but I fought 3 beatles in a row and received hearts, diamonds, and clubs jackets in that order this run. 2 more beatles directly after but they didn't drop the spades jacket. Was wearing the DB legendary outfit and an astral shirt, fledges, and baron's monocle. 21 lb fairy, no effects besides ultrahydrated. --Tellahff2 21:40, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
Palm frond conditional?
A clanmate of mine: "YR'd scarab beetles. I got diamond jacket, mojo filter, savoy truffle, rocky raccoon, hot date, water lilly, silver hammer, happiness....and no palm frond" --Greycat 16:30, 27 July 2012 (CEST)
- That makes sense given that the Hugo's Weaving Manual needed to do anything useful with palm fronds is also a conditional, one-time-per-ascension drop. --Wrldwzrd89 02:34, 28 July 2012 (CEST)
